Republic of Ireland’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign continues with a trip to Baku to face Azerbaijan this Saturday. The pair are the current bottom two in Group A, with the Azerbaijanis already eliminated. The Irish have had a dreadful campaign up until now, collecting just two points from a possible 15. No less than three points will do for Stephen Kenny and his troops at the Baku Olympic Stadium on Saturday evening. We have the latest odds and top tips.

Azerbaijan Preview – Can the Azerbaijanis pick up first win?

Azerbaijan are already eliminated from Group A after taking just one point so far. Gianni De Biasi’s side have lost four and drew one of five. Along the way, the Azerbaijanis have scored three and conceded nine.

After opening up with narrow defeats to Portugal, Serbia and Luxembourg, Azerbaijan picked up their first point of the group with a good draw in Dublin at the start of last month. Shane Duffy’s late leveller stopped Azerbaijan from taking all three points in Ireland’s capital.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

(odds taken 1117 GMT, Friday 8 October)

Last time out in the group, Azerbaijan suffered their heaviest loss so far. Efforts from Bernardo Silva, Andre Silva and Diego Jota gave the Portuguese a 3-0 win in Baku on 7th September. Will De Biasi’s team suffer another defeat this weekend?

Republic of Ireland Preview – Will the Irish secure a much-needed three points?

Stephen Kenny has had a pretty miserable time since taking the Republic of Ireland job, and the Irish are yet to win a game in this qualifying campaign. Ireland currently sit second from bottom in Group A, drawing two and losing three of five.

Ireland lost 3-2 in Serbia before suffering a shock 1-0 home loss to Luxembourg in game two. After a 2-1 reverse in Portugal, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the winner in the 96th minute, the Boys in Green have bounced back with back-to-back 1-1 draws with Azerbaijan and Serbia.

Despite their poor form, Ireland were the big favourites when the pair met in front of over 20,000 fans at the Aviva Stadium last month. However, it was Azerbaijan who nearly took all three points. Emin Mahmudov’s goal on the stroke of half time gave the visitors the lead, though Shane Duffy equalised for Ireland with three minutes to go.
